Overview

The DW Performance Series 20” 3-Piece Shell Pack in Chrome Shadow combines innovative construction techniques with hand selected materials to deliver rich versatile tone.

Shadow Style, Maple Sound

Part of the DW Performance Series, this 3-piece shell pack in Chrome Shadow features maple HVX shells, resonance aiding hardware and a striking finish to deliver stunning sound and style.

The all maple shells are built using proprietary techniques to ensure rich resonance and tonal versatility.

The kit is fitted with patented hardware that’s designed to provide reliable tom support without jeopardising tone and that accommodates easier tuning.

The shimmering Chrome Shadow finish delivers an eye-catching aesthetic to ensure you look as good as you sound behind these DW Drums.

DW Performance Series 20” 3-Piece Shell Pack in Chrome Shadow Configuration:

  • 12” x 8” Rack Tom
  • 14” x 14” Floor Tom
  • 20” x 16” Bass Drum

Shimmering Shadow

One of the options within the Ultra Durable FinishPly Finishes range, this Chrome Shadow finish delivers shimmering shine to ensure you stand out on stage.

Providing a striking pop of deep blue colour, this Chrome Shadow finish has a mirrored appearance to provide a sophisticated aesthetic.

The shining finish of the shells is matched perfectly by the all chrome hardware to ensure a consistently shimmering look across the kit.

All Chrome Everything

All the drums in the DW Performance Series are fitted exclusively with chrome hardware to provide a consistent look across the full range.

Each drum in the 3-piece kit features Turret Lugs. A scaled down version of the famous DW lug, these lugs provide the kit with an instantly recognisable look.

The 12” and 14” toms are fitted with 2.3mm graduated counter hoops to provide an even hold and consistent tuning.

The floor tom comes complete with DW standard chrome plated steel 21” legs and the 20” kick drum has low mass die-cast claw hooks to ensure a strong and rattle free hold.

HVX Shells

DW utilise a proprietary HVX process in the creation of their drum shells in order to achieve strong, perfectly round shells that deliver versatile tone and optimum resonance.

Developed by DW vice president John Wood along with the DW Custom Shell Shop team, the HVX process involves a precise pattern of long and short plies and grain orientation technology.

The grain orientation technique works by alternating the direction of the ply grain with each ply that is placed into the mould in order to ensure shell strength and shape integrity.

The shell is then baked in the mould under pressure before immediately being moved to a pressurized cooler to ensure the glue crystallizes instantly to deliver a hardened, perfectly cylindrical shell.

Maple Tone

All of the shells in this DW 3-piece kit are made from hand selected North American hard rock maple to produce low punchy tone, ample resonance and piercing projection.

Each shell is constructed from 8 plies of maple to deliver versatile, all-purpose tone filled with even amounts of highs and mids combined with lusciously warm lows.

The ideal choice for live playing, this DW Performance Chrome Shadow kit provides the cutting projection to slice through the mix while also delivering full depth of tone to ensure you have impact on stage.

All of the drum shells in this DW drum kit are finished with 45 degree back cut bearing edges to provide a modern, attacking tone that allows the character of the maple to shine.

Strong Tom Support

The 12” rack tom of this DW Performance kit is fitted with DW’s patented Suspension Tom Mount (STM) to provide strong support and precise positioning of the tom without negatively impacting the natural resonance of the drum.

This innovative STM system attaches to the rack tom via 4 lug points to prevent direct contact between the wooden shell and the metal mount, which would detrimentally affect the shells ability to vibrate.

By isolating the mount from the shell, the rack tom is allowed to resonate freely to achieve its optimum sustain.

Furthermore, the suspension tom mount doesn’t feature any washers or grommets that could inhibit the tension rod receivers on the lugs and cause tuning difficulties or tone chocking problems.

By maintaining separation from the shell and removing problematic parts the STM delivers reliable support for your tom whilst promoting the natural, full tone of the drums.

True-Pitch Rods

The DW Performance drums come fitted with DW true-pitch tension rods as standard to provide more precise and longer lasting tuning.

Typically, standard tension rods have 1 thread every 1.05mm, but the true-pitch tuning rods increase this by 20% with 1 thread every 0.8mm.

This increase in thread works to provide more exact tuning and a stronger hold of your settings to maintain consistent, longer lasting tuning too.

This means you can more easily achieve the exact sound you require and can trust it to remain in place from your first tap to your last hit.

Remo Drumheads

This DW Performance 3-piece shell pack comes fitted with DW Remo USA drumheads to provide superior sound and reliable durability immediately.

The DW Remo Coated/Clear heads used on this DW kit are predominately clear but incorporate a coated tone ring to ensure just the right amount of muffling while still providing ample resonance.

All of the heads have crimped flesh hoops to provide maximum vibration and durability.

The bass drum features a Coated/Clear Batter Head that has an inlay ring and the resonant side is fitted with an Ebony Resonant Logo Vented Head.

The two toms feature Coated/Clear Batter Heads and Clear Resonant Heads.
